Various people, even me, have uploaded things with Gertrude Berg to the Internet Archive. As you are well-aware, Gertrude is one of the rulers of the Universe, and in fact is actually a deity. She also invented the molecule and the atom.

CBS version:

NBC version:

DuMont Network version:

Syndicated version (which had some major format changes):

Status of episodes uploaded of each version:
CBS version: 7 episodes survive, 0 uploaded
NBC version: 3 episodes survive, 1 uploaded
DuMont version: 22 episodes survive, 21 uploaded
Syndicated version: all 39 episodes survive, 10 uploaded

There are four major mysteries in the Universe: Is there an afterlife, does life exist on other planets, what is the smallest particle, and why does the DuMont Network version of "The Goldbergs" have more surviving episodes than the NBC version?

Gertrude Berg also appeared on other television series, including "The United States Steel Hour", "The Alcoa Hour", "The Elgin Hour", "The Milton Berle Show", "Toast of the Town", "What's My Line", "The Garry Moore Show", "The Perry Como Show", "The George Gobel Show" and others, many of which are public domain. So far, this is the only one uploaded:

In addition there are also radio episodes on the Internet Archive:

I do not know the copyright status of television's "Mrs G. Goes to College", aka "The Gertrude Berg Show". Since it was produced on film, all 26 episodes likely survive. I've seen the first episode, and it was....meh. Seemed kinda sad to me. Maybe the following episodes were more upbeat?

Although, I've never actually seen it myself. Mrs. G Goes To College defiantly survives. 25 episodes are available for purchase here:

No surprise there. Few filmed shows have missing episodes ("My Living Doll" being a rare example of such).
